historic people to congress, but we have helped president barack obama, who has been so good for women across the country. it is so clear that this election was about women. women candidates, women donors. we heard a lot about women's issues. some in a way that i would prefer not to hear about. we heard about women voters who made those decisions. there was a lot of talk about the new democratic coalition of young people, hispanics, and women. i think that that is a great coalition. women are not just a voting bloc or a subset of the population. they are 51% of the population. last time that i checked, that was the majority. this last election, 55% of the women voted for president obama. there was an 18. gender gap. for every unmarried woman who voted for mitt romney, two voted for obama. women are going to make the decisions for the elections to come. they will decide to hold the power in this country. we know what is moving women voters.
